The owners of this place are great. Very welcoming and helpful. Tasty home cooked, made to order breakfast and consistent hot showers. AC worked great and beds were fine. Our room had a tv and mini-fridge as well. The only downside to this place is that if you're using it as a launching point for Manuel Antonio, it is a few kilometers outside of Quepos, but definitely worth the few extra minutes in the car. Kayak Lodge is a great value for your money, has plenty of parking and even has monkeys that are easily spottable in the trees surrounding the hotel. We were sad that we didn't have the time in our trip to take one of the kayak tours the place offers, which look fun and relaxing. The owners have a sweet little poodle who loves to make new friends, for those who are like me and really love dogs!!

- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Kayak Lodge is a Christian family hotel, committed to the natural environment: Protected area of tropical mangrove vegetation. The hotel has 20 rooms with private bath, air conditioning, hot water, local and satellite TV, outdoor pool, parking and launch ramp for kayaks and boat. The mangrove ecosystem of Isla Damas is one of the most visited tourist sites. Nature lovers can see one of the more unusual types of vegetation on the planet, and learn the importance of this delicate ecosystem. Mangroves grow in the tide land: where salty ocean waters merge with the fresh waters of tropical rivers creating a periodically submerged forest of interlacing aerial roots. There are about 50 km of canals where you are in the habitat of a variety of tropical flora and fauna. You can see white-faced monkeys playing in the trees, shake hands with a monkey on the balcony of the hotel, the lazy sloth, iguanas, crocodiles, bats, otters, raccoons, turtles, many types of resident birds, and the anteater. Take advantage of this diverse and self-sustaining way of life, taking a kayak trip to "Isla Damas" (Ladies Island), or rent a boat to go fishing. The Jetty of the Kayak-Lodge. This service center is used by operators to bring cruise tourists arriving in Puerto Quepos to give them a boat ride through the mangroves.
